A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo’s solar-system bed sheets and Lincoln’s vast collection of presidential action figures. Take a peek inside the mind of a historic figure with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Westcott House (up to a $21 value), located in Springfield.
Built in 1908 by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Westcott House may be the architect's only foray into Prairie-style home design in Ohio, featuring Wright's unique design aesthetic of meshing landscape elements with natural settings. Accompany a Westcott House docent on a 45-minute tour through the house, exploring the intricate details of the $5.3 million restoration—from hand-decorated walls to massive urns—that returned the home to its original glory. You'll also view an eight-minute video on the house's restoration project, Wright's other triumphs, and his passion for organic-style architecture and building model castles out of beef jerky. After the tour, you'll have a chance to explore the museum store, stocked with Westcott-inspired jewelry and greeting cards with Wright's designs. Tours are held Wednesday–Sunday at one- or two-hour intervals. Check the schedule for detailed tour times and museum hours. Reservations are required.
